Artist Statement- Liz Noble

My paintings are commentary and satire of my observations of stereotypically feminine beautification and adornment rituals, eating rituals and/or issues, and domestic rituals. The idea of changing the body’s appearance for whatever reason it may be, intrigues me and supplies my subject matter. I explore traditional gender roles, body manipulation, and stereotypes through dress patterns applied to the canvas, through color palette, and through various other media. My work also considers women’s relationships with food—how women feel about food, verses how we are supposed to feel about food, verses how we are basically taught to feel about food by way of mass media. Eating and not eating are ways in which one can also change the body’s appearance and functionality. The dress patterns become even more powerful when juxtaposed with imagery of food and the figure, directly referencing size, control, and form. Finally, my work also explores what it is to be “domestic” and how that has also played into defining gender roles and rituals.

Arkansas WAND is a chapter of a national organization, Women's Action for New Directions that was founded in the 1980s by Dr. Helen Caldicott as Women's Action for Nuclear Disarmament. When the Cold War ended and the nuclear threat was thought to be over, the name was changed. WAND expanded its mission to include world peace and security, nuclear disarmament, and redirecting excessive military spending to unmet human and environmental needs.

Arkansas WAND was founded in 1997 and has worked to involve women in changing the climate of fear and retaliation to one of working together with other nations in a spirit of diplomacy and cooperation. For more information about WAND go to their web-site.
